British Super Spy Danger Mouse is set to make a return to TV. The CBBC is bringing to life the 80s cartoon once again, in 52 all new adventures planned for 2015.
The series ran for over 10 successful years, before it came to an end in 1992. It was not only immensely popular in the UK, but internationally also, with the cartoon still holding a special place in viewers hearts.
Voiced by Sir David Jason and the late Terry Scott, the classic cartoon saw Danger Mouse and his trusty side-kick Penfold thwart many evil schemes in their escapades across the globe. Now an updated version of the pair will be back on our screens, with one of the major changes being DM’s eye-patch. It will be upgraded to an “i-patch” – a device which is set to have state of the art features.
The CBBC controller, Cheryl Taylor, said “Danger Mouse is the last word in debonair and delightfully eccentric heroics and with Penfold at his side the much-loved duo will win over a whole new generation of fans.”
There is no word yet on who will be voicing the characters in the new series.
While you eagerly await (or perhaps cringe in the corner) for the new series, lets take a little trip down memory lane.
And tell me below, do we need an updated version of Danger Mouse? With tricked-out headquarters and flashy gadgets?
